    Default Disable S voice galaxy s4

    Somehow I have launched s voice on my s4 and now even when I turn it off or try to disable it just keeps coming up. Mostly @ un opportune times. How can I turn s voice off completely it's so annoying. I'll be in the middle of something & if it connects to wifi or a text comes in etc.... The stupid thing launches and says "ask Galaxy" I hope someone can help

    Welcome to the forums!
    You should be able to disable it through Settings>application manager>swipe over to all apps>scroll down to SVoice> And click disable. You may need to uninstall updates first.
    Here is something to look over. A little more detailed: [Guide] Disabling apps on Galaxy S3 and Tab 2...No root required

    You might also try turning off Hands-free Mode, Settings > Controls > Hands-Free Mode (Off).

    In addition to making sure S Voice is turned off, this one should be turned off also.

    This worked for my Samsung Note with 4.4.2

    Did any of that advice help you? I'm having the same issue except S Voice is being annoyingly persistent. It might have to do with my installation of KitKat. I have disabled driving mode, yet it still automatically starts when I'm in the car, while in my purse, in which case it wakes up my phone and things get opened etc INCREDIBLY FRUSTRATING. Even with root, I can not completely uninstall it. I can not "disable" it either... I can "turn off" which uninstalls the updates, and then Samsung automatically, without my permission, re-installs them. I can't shut this damn thing off!!!!

    If you remove the app com.vlingo.midas it should get rid of S Voice after a reboot.
    It's gone on my S3 running 4.4.4 so far.
    Also uninstall the S Voice Sync Adapter app too.

    I've tried turning the "hands-free" off in Settings but it turns itself right back on. Anyone know an override? (I would be willing to shut down hands free forever)
